3 nightsNEW YORK

Fly straight to New York, and spend three nights at gorgeous boutique hotel, The Greenwich. Co-owned by Robert de Niro, and sitting nonchalantly amongst the red-brick buildings of New York’s TriBeCa district, The Greenwich will give you a really exclusive yet low key introduction to this exhilarating city. One of our favourite ways to begin is with a morning walk down to Battery Park, followed by a lazy brunch and a wander around MoMA which is right on The Greenwich’s doorstep. After this, your personal driver will transport you back in time to New York’s Gilded Age, for champagne at Grand Central Station, tea at the Russian Tearooms, or perhaps a concert with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra.

2 nightsNEWPORT, RHODE ISLAND

For a total contrast to the city, you’ll go where 19th century tycoons once “summered,” and retreat to Newport, Rhode Island, for understated luxury, and a relaxed yachty scene. With splendid views right over the harbour, your home for two nights is the elegant Vanderbilt Grace Hotel which was built by the 19th century industrialist family, the Vanderbilts, and still retains a charming grandeur from the Gilded Age. Staying here, you’ll be walking distance to the harbour and bustling Thames Street where you’ll find fantastic seafood restaurants, and historic New England-style mansions. One of the best ways to see it all is by taking a breezy coastal walk up in the cliffs, and after this you can enjoy golf, tennis, and sailing, before traditional afternoon tea on The Grace’s harbour-facing roof-terrace.

3 nightsSHELTER ISLAND, THE HAMPTONS

From the old-fashioned gentility of Rhode Island, you’ll take the ferry across the sound to Shelter Island in The Hamptons, and join Manhattan’s bright young things for vibrant beach parties, surfing, and people-watching. So you don’t have to crash the A-List parties, we’ve got you staying three nights at Sunset Beach: a former motel which has been transformed by Standard hotels into a cool beach-front hangout, and with an entourage who’ll make sure you’re on all the hottest guest-lists. Spend your days sunning yourself on the beautiful Atlantic Coast beaches, learning how to surf, and indulging in lobster at Sunset Beach’s renowned restaurant. You can also trek into the Mashomack nature reserve, which couldn’t feel further from New York, before enjoying The Hamptons’ legendary sunsets, bonfire-BBQs, and parties on the beach.
